XTC - English Settlement (2LPEdition)
A 2019 double 200g vinyl reissue of XTC's masterpiece from 1982.
While looking for the (still 'lost in the archives') multi-track tapes to enable Steven Wilson to undertake new stereo and 5.1 surround mixes of the album, the original half-inch master tapes were discovered and used as the source from which engineer John Dent cut new lacquers for this double 200g vinyl edition.
Includes lyric sheet. 33rpm
Originally issued as a now sold out deluxe vinyl set, this standard edition is the fifth in the XTC vinyl reissue series (joining Black Sea, Skylarking, Apple Venus and Wasp Star).
An album which set standards on its release sounds, if anything, even better now.
